about the building of dry stack stone walls

Take This Hammer was finished in September 2008. It is Bob Gordon’s story of building traditional dry stack stone walls by hand. The movie takes the viewer on a visual and musical journey where rural scenes of great beauty combine with hard physical work, the sound of rock on rock and hammer on rock, and the sound of the traditional music that makes the work flow smoothly.

"THINK OF A DRY STACK STONE WALL AS A LIVING THING, RIDING ON THE BACK OF THE EARTH. YOU DON’T SEE IT, BUT THE WALL IS MOVING, SETTLING IN, AFFECTED BY WIND, WATER, HEAT AND COLD, AND VIBRATION. IT’S NOT LIKE A POURED CONCRETE SLAB, BUT IF YOU BUILD IT RIGHT, IT WILL GET STRONGER AS IT SETTLES, AND WILL LAST FOR CENTURIES."

-- Bob Gordon
